The Corner

I gave at the office

The Wall Street Journal has (according to degrees of ennui) either an eye-popping or an eye-rolling story on Hillary’s latest Boogie-Woogie Bundler Boy:

BRISTOW, Va. — When Hillary Rodham Clinton held an intimate fund-raising event at her Washington home in late March, Pamela Layton donated $4,600, the maximum allowed by law, to Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign.

But the 37-year-old Mrs. Layton says she and her husband were reimbursed by her husband’s boss for the donations. “It wasn’t personal money. It was all corporate money,” Mrs. Layton said outside her home here. “I don’t even like Hillary. I’m a Republican.”

The boss is William Danielczyk, founder of a Washington-area private-equity firm and a major fund-raising “bundler” for Mrs. Clinton. Mrs. Layton’s gift was one of more than a dozen donations that night from people with Republican ties or no history of political giving.

If nothing else, this should lead to a ton of media stories this time next year about how “long-time Clinton donors” are now planning to vote for Mitt or Rudy. Shouldn’t it?
